About Sarah Nielsen

My husband, Brandon and I, Sarah, are Chico locals. We love our community & the gorgeous surrounding areas like Butte Meadows. I own a local Real Estate company, Independent Realty Group. And Brandon has a local contracting company.

Why Sarah Nielsen chose Butte Meadows

We spent our 10 year anniversary at Lassen National Park enjoying all it has to offer. We have busy lives as do most & wanted to find a nearby getaway to relax & unwind. Butte Meadows has it all. The people are extremely nice. The restaurants & bars are fun. In the summer they have live music & all you can eat BBQ's at the Outpost on Saturday nights. There's great fishing, hiking, dirt bike trails, etc. We purchased this home because of the great outdoor entertaining areas. You can relax on the decks, sip some wine, & listen to the creek. It's a very special place we are happy to share.

What makes this cabin unique

Great fishing on Butte Creek - Fish & Game stocks annually

Snow mobile park & cross country skiing/snowshoeing in the winter

Small sledding hill on property

Great place...Great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun at The Flying Chipmunk. I had to work in Butte Meadows and this was the perfect spot to be. .2 miles from the Bambi Inn, creek right down the path. The fire pit and deck were perfect for the warm summer nights. The cabin had everything we needed and more. Four adults and a two year old and there was plenty of room. I only wish we had the time to stay one more day...well, two more days. This is a place we will definately return to. Lots of fun memories were made.

Quite, quaint and a great community.

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place for Chico graduation weekend but all hotels fill up quickly. I decided to search for a VRBO and found this cabin 35 minutes out of town. We decided to make an extended weekend out of it. The weather is more pleasant then the near 100 degrees in town. The home is well stocked with everything you need. There are two fun bars with great food and great owners. Everyone here was so helpful and treated us like we were members of the town. Sarah was so helpful when we accidentally lock the keys in the house. I suggest to anyone staying here to keep the keys in the lockbox on the door. Makes life a whole lot easier.

Comfy cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husbands birthday weekend at The Flying Chipmunk. The cabin was clean and tidy, well appointed with anything and everything you could possibly need and very comfortable! We especially enjoyed the outdoor fire pit. There is plenty to do inside including games and dvd's but outside was just beautiful. The Fall color and crisp, cool mountain air was outstanding! My husband and his brother did some fishing in the area and had a little luck. We hope to come back to The Flying Chipmunk again soon!
